Chapter 663: Billion Demonic Souls
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
As the Billion Demonic Sword vibrated, the earth trembled and Demonic Qi spread like crashing waves across the area.
Everyone stopped battling at the sight and looked on at this scene with surprise and confusion.
They watched as the rolling Demonic Qi shaped themselves into an army of thousands.
They had formed an army that resembled human troops.
This army numbering in the hundreds of thousands was formed entirely by Demonic Qi. Their bodies were all black that gave off thick Demonic Qi and they were clad in black armor. Their faces were horrifically savage, full of anger and hostility.
The Demonic Sword continued to vibrate violently and as black Demonic Qi relentlessly spewed forth from it, the Demonic Qi army continued to grow in numbers.
“Cackle Cackle Cackle!”
The moment the army formed, sounds of savage laughter and roars filled the air.
Then, the black army charged forward like a raging black torrent toward the crowd.
“What is happening?”
“What is that?”
Everyone was shocked and completely rooted to the spot in terror as they looked dumbly at the approaching army.
“These are Demonic Souls, the vengeful souls from the Billion Demonic Sword!” Yin Qingyuan, the governor of Sky Devil City suddenly shouted in alarm.
He might be an Advanced Martial King Realm martial artist, but even he wasn’t immune to the terrifying force of this army.
This was just too shocking!
“Vengeful souls?” Su Mo’s eyes widened.
If the Billion Demonic Sword was refined with the souls of a billion people, wouldn’t that mean that there were a billion demonic souls inside the Demonic Sword?
The thought of a billion Demonic Souls was enough to make one’s hair stand on end!
Fortunately, this black army of Demonic Souls was of relatively low cultivation. Each Demonic Soul was only of Qi cultivation Realm.
Their cultivation ranged between Lv 1 to Lv 9 Qi cultivation Realm.
Su Mo did not dare to let down his guard. Who knew if these Demonic Souls’ cultivation could increase as they killed others.
After all, the same thing had happened to them.
Boom boom boom!
The Demonic-soul Army came charging at them like a tsunami.
They were only of Qi cultivation Realm but since their bodies were made up of Demonic Qi, they could easily soar through the sky.
Soon, the pitch-black Demonic-soul Army approached Su Mo and the rest who led the pack.
“Cackle Cackle Cackle!”
“Kill! Kill! Kill!”
Those savage Demonic Souls yelled excitedly, as if they were on stimulants and immediately started to launch frenzied attacks on Su Mo and the rest.
Those who had regained True Spirit Realm cultivation were naturally not about to be sitting ducks and quickly retaliated. Various dazzling radiances filled the sky.
Everyone was an expert so these Demonic Souls of Qi Cultivation Realm did not stand a chance at all.
One attack from the group was sufficient to wipe out a large number of them.
Poom! Poom! Poom!
Thousands of Demonic Souls shattered and released copious amounts of Demonic Qi that swept across the surroundings.
After one round of attack, the group had destroyed tens of thousands of Demonic Souls.
However, the Demonic Souls continued to charge at them, their numbers increasing as they bombarded them with frenzied attacks.
Su Mo and the rest of the experts were surrounded by large swathes of Demonic Soul troops, and countless other Demonic Soul troops also started to attack those at the back.
Countless Demonic-soul Armies had filled the entire place in a matter of 10 minutes.
“Kill! Kill! Kill!”
Battle cries rang out as everyone started to kill frantically again. This time though, their target was not each other, but the Demonic Souls.
High up in the air, Su Mo’s hands kept moving and air blasts continued to burst forth from his attacks as the approaching Demonic Souls were destroyed. They all died in large numbers.
Everyone else also found it relatively easy to kill the Demonic Souls. They were all able to destroy them in large numbers with a wave of their hand.
However, what Su Mo had been dreading happened.
Since the number of martial artists in this place numbered millions, the Demonic Souls managed to kill the weaker ones, especially those that had just arrived and whose cultivation were all incredibly low.
Those of Qi cultivation realm could not withstand repeated attacks from the Demonic-soul Army.
As more and more people died, experts started to emerge from the Demonic Soul army and their strength rapidly increased.
In about 10 minutes, hundreds of Demonic Souls had reached Spiritual Martial Realm cultivation.
“Oh no!” Su Mo turned pale at the sight. If this went on, they would be in trouble!
If a large number of these Demonic Souls managed to attain the strength of a True Spirit Realm martial artist, then they would all die here.
Everyone else showed the same reaction, all struck dumb at the sight.
Su Mo thought quickly, then he charged headlong at the army of Demonic Souls and straight toward the Demonic Sword.
In such a situation, he could only rush to obtain the Demonic Sword first!
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Su Mo continued to slash out with his sword as he flew. His sword radiance pierced a hole through the raging army of Demonic Souls.
Su Mo slashed out a path for himself as he rushed toward the Demonic Sword.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Many people had the same idea as him and the 50-odd experts leading the pack quickly charged at the Demonic Sword at once.
Everyone understood that this would only end if they obtained the Demonic Sword.
Those 50-odd people were like 50-odd sharp swords that tore through the Demonic-soul Army that surrounded them and streaked toward the Demonic Sword.
Su Mo immediately activated his Demonic Martial Soul and its devouring power had a reach of hundreds of meters.
Those Demonic Souls within the affected area all exploded and turned into an immense Demonic Qi that rushed toward Su Mo.
Su Mo did not dare to absorb these Demonic Qi but instead used his Qi strength to scatter the Demonic Qi in the air.
With the help of his Devouring Martial Soul, Su Mo’s speed of killing increased manifold. Countless Demonic Souls were just destroyed without him having to lift a finger.
Su Mo started to move faster and immediately pulled ahead of the rest.
“What’s happening?” Su Mo looked up at the Demonic Sword, frustration clear on his face.
The Demonic Sword had just been a few hundred kilometers away which was just a few minutes’ journey for him. Yet, he had been flying for so long but the Demonic Sword still seemed about the same distance away!
Su Mo could not be bothered to read too deeply into this, and rushed toward the Demonic Sword.
Suddenly, a shrill, ear-piercing sound could be heard coming from behind and Su Mo felt his hairs stand on hair as a feeling of danger crept up on him.
Su Mo immediately swerved sideways without much thought.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
A ray of sword Qi brushed past him, destroying many Demonic Souls in front of Su Mo.
Su Mo hurriedly turned to look and spotted Xing Feng in close pursuit of him.
“Who do you think you are to try to obtain the Demonic Sword first?” Xing Feng scoffed then said condescendingly, “Get lost!”
Su Mo’s eyes filled with killing desire. How dare this person even think of competing with him for the Demonic Sword!
